Fasil Kenema home away from home game against Wolyata Dicha at the Wolyata Stadium was a highly anticipated affair.
The Sunday 5th March encounter had seen fans criss-cross town on Saturday evening singing and dance across the streets on and the tempo was raised early in the morning of the match day when hundreds of fans arrived at the stadium.
Fans, branded with red and white tops could just not wait for the game kick off. Ladies, in droves, went a step better to match the tops with white pants giving the team a well orchestrated follow before and during the game.
But the home side had the smiles sending two past the gathered home fans most of whom had travelled to Wolyata from everywhere else.
Left cold with no points, fans streaming out of the stadium were in for another as they were left lamenting about the match.
“It was just upsetting really. It was disappointing. We worked so hard and everybody was like, ‘Oh the Fasil Kenema are coming out of nowhere, what a blindsided team,’ and then we just let it go,”said a disappointed Faisal Kenema fan just before tracing his way back to Addis Ababa.
The defeat leaves Fasil Kenema in the sixth position with a stagnant 26 points from seventeen games.
